“I started not with the feel of the city but with my own emotions. I felt dark, lonely, a little scared, and I built a city—based on New York—out of that feeling.

In this case, the delivery man became the recipient (and embodiment) of my emotions.” — Pascal Campion, on his cover for the April 13 edition of The New Yorker.
